Always and Forever at Glendale Hall by Victoria Walters

What if we’re all just searching for something?

Anna Stewart is lost. After barely surviving a car accident as a teenager, Anna is scared of settling. Flitting between jobs, boyfriends and homes whenever she gets bored, she has no idea what the future holds. Then her brother Brodie, minister of Glendale, suggests she moves to the beautiful Scottish village, lining up a housekeeper job for her at Glendale Hall.

Out of options, Anna agrees to the move, knowing that she can always run away again. Once at the hall, her culinary skills impress everyone, and she agrees to give Hilltop Farm’s new manager, Cameron, cooking lessons. Sparks fly between Anna and the handsome Scot, but Cameron is looking for love – something that Anna definitely isn’t.

But it’s wedding season at Glendale Hall, and Anna is about to discover that her new home has a way of working its magic on even the coldest of hearts. Will she really be able to just walk away, or could Anna have finally found a place to belong?

It’s summertime in the beautiful Highlands village of Glendale – pack your bags and come on holiday with this gorgeously uplifting, romantic read. Fans of Milly Johnson, Heidi Swain and Holly Martin will love this charming romcom.

My Thoughts


I have been following the Glendale Hall series from the beginning, and with each new addition to the story I find myself falling more in love with this picture perfect village and its occupants.

In this book we meet Anna, a newcomer to Glendale Hall. As she is introduced to her new neighbours, we are provided with some background details on each of them, something that is perfect for refreshing the mind of people like me who have read all of the books, and allowing those who have picked this book up as a standalone to get a grasp of who they are as individuals.

Anna has had a rather difficult time over the years, and because of this she finds it incredibly difficult to settle down anywhere. When her brother Brodie, the minister of Glendale contacts her and suggests that moving to the quiet village may be the best thing for her, Anna is rather sceptical, but with a job lined up for her within Glendale Hall she decides it is worth giving the place a shot.

When Anna starts her new job, everyone is blown away by her cooking skills, so much so that she ends up being roped in to giving Hilltop Farm’s manager some much needed cooking lessons. Anna is dubious at first, but when Cameron walks in, she is shocked by the instant attraction she feels towards him, not to mention the obvious sparks that are flying between the pair. But Anna and Cameron are both looking for very different things in life.

Victoria Walters has such an incredible way with words, she always manages to make the characters come to life before your eyes along with the gorgeous village of Glendale. The interactions between the characters are delightful and really warm your heart. Each of them are totally unique and have their own stories to share with us, and with Anna being the latest addition to the picturesque village, well, the dynamics certainly change that’s for sure!.

This is one of those books that feels as though they have wrapped their arms around you and given you the warmest of embraces. I adore this series, and this latest instalment was everything I had hoped it would be, and more.
